I was lucky enough to be sent a little taster of Sugar and Crumbs ‘salted caramel naturally flavoured icing sugar‘ so wanted to give the flavour a chance to shine – so this called for MACARONS! I must admit I was worried that the flavoured icing might be tinted in colour but it was a beautiful, crisp white, perfect for letting you play around with designs and colours yourself! Also, it gives you a little surprise when you bite into the macaron, as it appears to be a simple buttercream, then you get a POW of flavour! Everybody loved them.

If you have never tried making them, don’t be scared just give it a go, here’s a simple macaron recipe to follow.
NOTE: Make sure you SIEVE YOUR GROUND ALMONDS, it takes ages (moan) so if you have a blender, then blitz them for a bit instead – it makes such a difference to the smoothness of your finished macaron. It makes no difference to the flavour though, but for a lovely smooth surface on your macaron, my advice is blitz!
